'Slap Ya Mama' ad appears on field during Saints-Titans game (Photo)

If you live in New Orleans, I’m guessing you didn’t even bat an eyelash when the words “Slap Ya Mama” suddenly appeared on the field in the middle of Friday’s Saints-Titans game. Folks in that area are surely aware that Slap Ya Mama is a popular brand of Cajun seasoning.

Folks across the rest of the nation, who likely aren’t aware of Slap Ya Mama, may have a different reaction seeing a screencap of the field when the ad appeared.

Slap ya mama? What the hell is that? Is the field telling me to go out and slap my mama???

No, the field is not telling you to slap yo mama. It’s an ad for Cajun seasoning. Calm down.

I suppose if you wanted to be hyper-PC about it you could go the same route as Darren Rovell and suggest that the ad is highly inappropriate in light of recent disturbing incidents of violence against women perpetrated by professional football players. But keep in mind, it’s a local ad. It’s Cajun seasoning.

The Saints don’t endorse slapping yo mamas. They do endorse going after quarterbacks’ knees.
